Over the past week, as we walked around the settlement, we have seen artists scattered about, painting Hopetown’s scenery. Their presence added another dimension to the sense of community that pervades little Hope Town. We learned that the artists were participating in a local gallery’s workshop led by artist, Walt Bartman.
We had already stumbled upon the Hummingbird Cottage Art Centre housed in a charming historic Loyalist cottage here in Hope Town. It was recently restored by the owners and is now a beautiful setting for art exhibits.
Sunday, January 13th, the artists in the workshop exhibited their paintings at the gallery.
Today we mixed our beach time with art time. We had another swim in the gentle surf this morning, just before the skies opened with a short downpour. We laughed as some of the saltiness was washed from our skin when we finally climbed out of the water. Once the rain clouds passed Elbow Cay, it became another beautiful day here. On our way home from the art show, we stopped to look at the ocean one more time.
